    I wonder what he was reading ?

      An inquiring mind. But I knew that already. Proof reading one of his own?

    Note that he has a real book, not a Kindle. Also, he’s holding it with his left hand. He seems so absorbed that the mosquitos don’t bother him. A great image of satisfying geezerhood.

      Another example of your terrific observations. By the way the caption of the painting is, “I wish I had a Kindle Fire.”
